If you really want to be that pedantic about things, it's rather
trivial to argue that the GPL should be explicitely exempted by DFSG
§10, even though I'm personally not happy with doing that.[1]

Regardless, I really don't see a problem here. But, again, if you
really think that it is a serious issue, one that we can't fix by
applying some common sense,[2] think about how to fix the issue
sanely, and propose language to fix it.
